The deal is valued at $1.25 billion at list prices, with deliveries commencing in 2021.

The latest order takes BOC Aviation’s outstanding orders to 348 aircraft, including 84 737 Max aircraft.
Flight Fleets Analyzer shows that, with the confirmation of the BOC Aviation order, Boeing now holds firm orders for 267 737 Max 10s, following a strong launch of the new variant at the Paris air show.
